Last day of an era

Today was the last day of the Bear's first baseball season.


The Bear had a fun time playing. He learned about the game. He loves to hit the balls with a bat. He loves to run around the bases. The one major element that he needs to work on is his attention span on the field. Actually when a batter takes too long to hit a ball, all the kids in the field seem to lose interest. Go figure!

Earlier this week with the kids out from school, I took them to the park in the morning. And I had the kiddos run the bases. Here's the Bear running flat-out around the bases.

Here is the Bear's last at-bat today.

While the Bear was playing, the Princess was off at the playground.

She did take some time to relax though. Doesn't she look worldly in her Hollywood sunglasses?

I'll have to find out when the next season starts. I don't know if they have fall ball around here. If they do? I think we'll be getting the Bear into it. But for now? Baseball is done. [sigh]
